Fingerprint-based national background checks may cause a delay in credentialing. Individuals who satisfy all other licensing requirements and qualifications may receive a temporary practice permit while the national background check is completed.
(1) A temporary practice permit, as defined in RCW 18.130.075
, shall be issued at the written request of an applicant for dentists, expanded function dental auxiliaries, dental anesthesia assistants, and dental assistants. The applicant must be credentialed in another state, with credentialing standards substantially equivalent to Washington.
(2) The conditions of WAC 246-817-160
must be met for applicants who are graduates of dental schools or colleges not accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation.
